⚾ Josenberger Named to Perfect Game Preseason All-Big 12 Team

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas sophomore INF/OF Tavian Josenberger was selected to the preseason All-Big 12 team by Perfect Game on Wednesday.

Redshirt-sophomore RHP Ryan Vanderhei (No. 32) was on the list for 2022 and sophomore INF Maui Ahuna (No. 9) and Josenberger (No. 11) were the pair ranked in the 2023 class.

Kansas will open its season on February 18 with a three-game series against Illinois at Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi, Texas.
